The 6th meeting of an informal club „Kidney Tumor Friends“ will be held this year in Mikulov, the Czech Republic. The meeting will take place in the hotel Galant (https://galant.cz/hotel-galant-mikulov/). The format of the meeting will be a combination of an interactive microscopic seminar (Thursday, June 13) and lectures (Friday and Saturday, June 14 and 15). 

The meeting will focus mainly on diagnostics problems in general GU pathology, rare and new kidney tumors, testicular tumors and prostatic lesions. The majority of speakers are authors of WHO classifications, therefore it is possible to expect brand new reviews of GU problematic. Registration will be limited to 80 participants for the interactive microscopy seminar (due to limited capacity), the lectures are without capacity limitation.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in the Czech Republic.

Sincerely yours, 

Kristýna Pivovarčíková and Michal Michal
